In July 1575 Robert Dudley ,
Earl of Leicester, entertained Queen Elizabeth I and her court for 18 days. This was
Dudley's final attempt to woo the Queen. The greatest poets were commissioned to write verses and pageants and the finest musicians got no rest.
No one was in any doubt as to the political undercurrent ot the event, but in the meantime all enjoyed it.

British Nudism in the 1930s 'These were the League-of-Health-and-Beauty years: we hiked and biked and youth-hostelled and nudism came rolling in over Britain on a wave of muscle-toner, Sloan's liniment, suntan oil and calamine lotion.' Armed with a pair of binoculars and a copy of the Vagrancy Act (1824),

A new classical pipe organ was installed last year in Wetheral Parish Church, which stands on the banks of the River Eden, near Carlisle, in Cumbria. It was built by Richard Bower , a young organ restorer and builder from
Neatishead in Norfolk. This two-manual instrument, his largest so far, took 18 months' work.
Nigel Holmes watched and listened as the organ came to life. The inaugural recital was given by the distinguished young Cumbrian David Hill, Master of the Music at Westminster Cathedral. Producer NIGEL HOLMES

25 Years of Madness What - me worry? (ALFRED E. NEUMAN )
Towards the end of 1959, one of America's most successful humour magazines, Mad, launched a British edition. Its editorial position was clear: if it exists, we can take the mickey out of it. In the last 25 years, they have lampooned everything - but principally the America we know through the cinema and television.
Christopher Frayling looks at the style and substance of the monthly magazine, with the help of the publisher William Gaines , the Editor
Albert B. Feldstein and 'the usual gang of idiots', writers and artists who have contributed to a magazine which has survived with no advertising revenue for 25 years.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
